Storyline

As they try to reach Caesar in Greece, the shipwrecked Vorenus and Pullo confront an unexpected dilemma. Back in Rome, Atia again sends Octavia to beg protection from Servilia, who complies readily to encourage her growing friendship with Octavia. As they prepare their counterattack against Caesar, Pompey's Republicans begin to squabble over both the anticipated spoils and the method of finishing Caesar off. Niobe's sister Lyde comes back to see her and comforts her over Vorenus's disappearance. Badly outnumbered, Caesar and Antony make their stand at Pharsalus. On his arrival in Egypt, Pompey is greeted by a Roman veteran. Written by Tom D.

Goofs

Brutus and Cicero are shown surrendering together to Caesar after the Battle of Pharsalus. In reality, only Brutus surrendered immediately after the battle, since Cicero wasn't even present at the battle. Cicero remained with Cato and other Pompeian loyalists until news of Pompey's defeat and subsequent murder reached them, causing Cicero to immediately judge that the war was lost. He refused the offer made to him by Cato of supreme command of their remaining army, enraging Pompey's son Cnaeus to the point where he almost killed Cicero before Cato intervened and stopped him. Cicero returned to Italy and surrendered to Mark Antony, but was told that only Caesar could officially pardon him. Cicero then met with Caesar as the general was leaving Brundisium, and he was instantly pardoned. See more »

Porcius Cato: Have you no dignity? No honor?
Marcus Tullius Cicero: Some little, I hope. Not as much as you, of course.
Scipio: Caesar will kill you.
Marcus Tullius Cicero: That may be. I'm not afraid to die... I'm tired. I want to go home.
